Victor Moses had never played the wing-back role before Chelsea boss Antonio Conte converted him into a right wing-back.

Moses has been transformed into a world-class wing-back. He has scored three goals and provided two assists while also making more successful dribbles than any other full-back or wing-back in the Premier League this season.

“The first time he (Conte) put me there was the day after we lost to Arsenal,” Moses told Sky Sports.

“We all knew the formation he liked to play when he was Italy manager but I had never actually thought about playing wing-back.

“After the session, he went through it all with me, how to play the position and everything.

“I took it in and didn’t look back.

“I’ve always played in different positions. I don’t see myself in one position.

“I’m an all-round player. Wherever the manager asks me to play, I’m willing to do it to help the team.

“He knows I’m good offensively. He has always said that to me that I’m very good in one-v-ones but defensively he’s always working hard on me in training to make sure I’m solid.

“It has helped bring my game to another level. He talks to me a lot. I really appreciate that from a manager.”
